    Anyone else looking at the buyout candidates now and thinking "Maybe they should get another 3 and D wing instead?" I'm all in on small ball. I only want 6'6" guys who can shoot 3s from now on.

    Add Dion Waitors and IT to that list.

    No big men like Noah or Tristan Thompson will ever sign with Houston because Dan Tony is racist against tall guys.

    This could be absolutely gigantic for us. Give me Marvin Williams, Harkless, James Johnson. Screw Centers. It's a new age baby!

    harkless would be great. watch him go to the lakers for no other reason than to get back at the clippers. but he would probably be a good fit on the mavs

    Harmless would fit here pretty good it’s adding to the forward depth, decent defender and 3 point shooter.

    There’s going to be a series in the playoffs where the Rockets will need a center or two for minutes. Not saying Hartenstein & Chandler could be two..but they need a third center.

    Preferably someone who can defend in the paint, rebound & shoot triples.

    If we want 3 and D and 6"6, I suggest J.R Smith.

    Marvin Williams is both taller (6'8 vs. 6'7) and longer (7'2 wingspan vs. 6'11 wingspan), plus better 3P shooter as well as defender.

    Keef is overrated.

    His twin, Marcus (former Rocket) is much better player.

    Next evolution will be 5 guys all 6'8+ with 7'0+ wingspans that can all switch defend, handle ball, pass and shoot 3's.

    Meyers Leonards stats look good. Finishes well within 5 ft and shoots well from three. Been improving every year. 7 feet tall and young.

    Harkless is a really good defender. I feel like we would have a hard time landing him. Lakers, Bucks, Raptors, Miami would be all over him.
